Abstract

The flow of a viscous, incompressiable and electrically conducting nanofluid flow over a stretching sheet under the influence of a transverse magnetic field is investigated taking in to account the effect of non-linear thermal radiation, newtonian heating and partial velocity slip. The nanofluid model considered in the paper incorporates the effect of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The governing equations, in similarity form, are solved using Matlab's in-built boundary value problem solver "bvp4c". The nanofluid flow model discussed in the present paper has significant applications in fluid engineering devices where the boundary surface is subjected to convecting heating and the temperature difference between the ambient fluid and the surface is large.
